The pop star has been fighting Lyme disease for much of this year (15), but now she's working towards a new release in the festive holiday.

The 30-year-old Complicated singer says, "I've always wanted to make a Christmas album, but I've never had the time. But now it's like, 'You know what, just do it!'

"That's something I really want to do, so that's going to be next for me."

Lavigne recently told People magazine she was bedridden for five months as she battled Lyme disease.

She said, "I felt like I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk and I couldn't move. I thought I was dying. There were definitely times I couldn't shower for a full week because I could barely stand."
